I'm looking for some nice, cool, not too fussy summer dresses. I work in a fairly casual office, and I'd like to be able to wear the dresses on the weekend or to work with nicer shoes and jewelry and a wrap or sweater.
Here's what I'm looking for:
-For this purpose, I'm not really into strapless, spaghetti strap, or halter styles. I want to be able to wear a regular bra, so tank, cap or short sleeves I guess.
-No "sexy" details, I don't want backless, corseted, plunging neckline etc.
-Above the knee is okay, mid-thigh is not (J Crew, I'm looking at you).
-Despite the above points, I don't want anything frumpy - I just don't like really bare clothing, especially at work.
-Bonus points for cool summer fabrics like silk or linen blends.
-More bonus points for machine or hand wash.
-Less than $100 each.
